. >> i'll give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. >> alice, for a variety of reasons it was not. mainly because of the anti-immigration rhetoric that was doled out by the standard bear. mitt romney all through 2012. can this reverse that course? >> oh, it sure can. we learned a lesson. i think this is a great first step. the framework for this plan being that it's a good consensus of republicans and democrats. it's a great start. i think victoria hit on it. senator rubio also hit on it. fairness is critical in this. the framers of this immigration plan say this is tough, but it's fair. that's important. those that have been going about obtaining citizenship through the legal means should be front of the line and those who have not should go to the back of the line. i think there's also an important emphasis on employer verification and border security. all these are good components to a fair system for legal immigration. >> the national jou

2012 election. the congressman told "meet the press" moderator david gregory that it's premature to talk about whether he will run for president in 2016. >> i've got an important job to do. i represent wisconsin. i'm chairman of the budget committee at the time we have a fiscal crisis. i think can i do my job representing the people that i work for by focusing on that right now than focusing on these distant things. >> and there's this, a new anti-chuck hagel ad has just popped up days before senate hearings are set to start on his nomination as defense secretary. the ad is from a conservative group called americans for strong defense. at least five other groups from the right and from the left are all organizing to block hagel's nomination. first though shame on you, barack obama. it was one of hillary clinton's most notorious quotes when challenging her 2008 democratic opponent, then candidate obama later shot back calling his opponent, quote, likable enough. the two have come a long way since then in a jooint joint interview airing tonight on "60 minutes" the president says he'll

presidential election, provide them with footage they can use in attack ads. instead, hillary clinton gave herself a highlight reel by spanking the senators pretty forcefully there. they came off as unserious. she came off as very serious. >> you bring up senator johnson. i want to bring up that exchange. it seemed to be the most heated of the day. >> the american people could have known that within days and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or guys out for a walk who decided to kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? it's our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> show everybody the cover of the "new york post" today that says no wonder bill's afraid. joy ann, i want to start with you on this one. they capture that moment in time there. again, as i said, it got heated during that exchange, but you would not see a man put in that position on the front page of the "new york post" saying no wonder his wife is afraid.

vice president had said that after this election, the fever would break. are we looking at the fact that there is a broken fever and maybe that is the first step, that both sides are going to be willing to work together not for the advancement of individual party but for the advancement of this country? >> well, i'm encouraged by that. i think we are seeing some pragmatism on the republican side. i think we are seeing some good ideas come out, like no budget, no pay, which is something no labels has been pushing for a long time. we're seeing democrats on the senate side saying they are finally going to put forward a budget after four years, because budget is policy so i think we're seeing some thawing on both sides and some common sense coming forward because people realize that these problems are too big and we've got -- the only way to solve them is if we're going to come together. >> all right. so this is about the enduring ideas and finally, i just want to leave off with this. the national journal saying post-partisan no more. history doesn't make excuses. if obama's agenda fail
